Well, it was better for me than most, because—again, I have to refer back, I’m a home builder, built my own home—I thought I was building a future in-law suite, it wasn’t.  I have a two story home, I’ve done well for myself, I think; and I built what I thought was going to be an in-law suite.  So, the transition was really, really smooth, and what little things weren’t there, like I think, you know, we have one door to go to a bathroom; we made it into a double door.  You know, my co-workers were over there, knocked it in, done.  Transition—put in a ramp—it was all done for me.  I hear stories about people have holes cut in their walls to get to bathrooms; I’ve heard some ugly stuff out there.  But, you know, I was in the right business, and I had the right people around me.
